Texas Wild Flowers
Since we haven't had ANY rain at all, I thought I would add these little wild flowers. I took a picture of clumps of them, growing in the pastures just West of town several years ago. They are so pretty when in full bloom. I don't know the real name for them, but they are beautiful growing in and out of the barbed wire. Maybe we will have some blooming soon!
This painting was done first with transparent watercolor, then I painted over it with gouache leaving a little bit of the paint showing. For those of you who don't know what gouache is...pronounced gwash...it is watercolor but it is opaque. It has a chalky appearance.
I love doing faces...I am using watercolor and gouache on watercolor paper. These are 9x12.
